“In Depth With Francis Rose” will now air weekday afternoons, live from 3-7 p.m.  The show will feature long-form interviews, news, and information aimed at the federal executive, and will include several high profile series, including “The Federal News Countdown,” – a weekly recap of the most important news stories as chosen by members of the federal community.
